SmorgasBoard Posts No Longer Included in Post Counts

Hello SmorgasBoard posters!

Effective immediately, posts made to SmorgasBoard topics will no longer be included in your total post count.  Any SmorgasBoard posts already included in your post count will remain.

The reason for this change is to more accurately measure your level of community participation by applying more weight to the credit-related topics than the off-topic discussions.  We still enjoy and appreciate your comments here, though, so please don't don't stop posting to "Gas"!

Thanks to all of you for contributing to the community -- whether on or off topic!

-Barry

P.S.  Feel free to reply to this post with your comments, but be aware that it won't help increase your post count.  :smileywink:

Now semi-retired, in a much more productive past life I served as FICO consumer affairs manager and myFICO Forums community manager from 2007 to 2012. I now write a weekly column about, what else, credit scoring for CreditCards.com.

I have a feeling you're not the only one, casmith1980.  It will be interesting to see if that thread remains as popular going forward.

You know - paychecks.  I heard you can get rich from the internet and I figured this would be the easiest way.  No?
